WASHINGTON DC: This is with reference to the May 16 article titled “Bannu attack: Taliban release video of brazen jailbreak”. To quote from the report: “The video begins with Tehreek-e-Taliban chief Hakeemullah Mehsud pledging to fight the Pakistani government “to the last man and last bullet.” Only in Pakistan such barbarous butchers receive sympathy and offers for infinite negotiations and accommodation from apologists like the PTI and the Jamaat-e-Islami. There is nothing the Taliban can do that would cause revulsion and outrage in our confused nation — thanks to the confused leaders who can’t see beyond America/Israel/India.
